    BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China's Tencent Holdings Ltd saw its stock tumble on Tuesday, wiping out around $15 billion in its market value, amid concern of a blow to its video game revenue after regulators blocked the sale of one of its blockbuster titles. Analysts had widely expected "Monster Hunter: World" to be one of 2018's biggest hits for Tencent, which licensed the game from Japan's Capcom Co Ltd to sell on its WeGame platform. Tencent in a statement said regulators had received a large number of complaints about the game, which has sold over eight million copies worldwide.
